Alan Belcher, who became the BKFC heavyweight champion just four months ago, has been stripped of his title by the organization. BKFC president David Feldman made the announcement on Tuesday, citing Belcher’s upcoming boxing match against Hasim Rahman Jr. as the reason for the decision. Belcher’s fight interfered with BKFC’s plans for him and the defense of his heavyweight title. Instead of crowning an interim champion, BKFC has opted to strip Belcher of his title and will hold a fight to determine a new heavyweight champion in the upcoming weeks.

Despite losing his title, Alan Belcher, a 38-year-old UFC veteran, will remain a part of the BKFC roster and is expected to compete in the promotion at a later date. Belcher’s transition to bare-knuckle fighting came after he came out of retirement following a hiatus of over five years. Known for his fights at 185 pounds in MMA, Belcher made a successful comeback as a heavyweight, securing three consecutive victories, including two knockouts, to earn a shot at the BKFC championship. He claimed the title with a third-round knockout of former champion Arnold Adams.

Speculations had been circulating that Belcher would face fellow UFC veteran Ben Rothwell, but the fight never materialized. As Belcher prepares for his boxing match in July, BKFC is moving forward with its plans to crown a new heavyweight champion in the near future.

bkfc made the right move stripping belcher’s title. if he’s fighting in boxing, he shouldn’t hold the heavyweight belt. let someone else take the throne. i’m hyped for the upcoming fight to determine the new champ!
